On the side


I've been so caught up in printing and catching up with friends and NYC that I haven't had the energy to do anything else, aside from a little weaving on the commute. By the end of the week I had a little bud vase! An easier way to process the days after seeing family, old friends, an ex co-worker, Sam Shepard's "Heartless", and a documentary filmmaker. I'm amazed at how we have all grown and shifted over the years, how life has provided all sorts of adventures and heartache and the like.
Tom had insisted weeks ago that I finished up his shoe from a workshop in Korea two years ago. I don't know how to do straw shoes (and this was a modification, using thick paper twine in one long length, over rope), so I watched this and then made that up there. Except I wanted it to be reversible in case he ever has the time to practice, so I didn't cut off all the ropes. Plus there wasn't enough paper to finish it completely but I think it's fine for a first-time one off. Now I am free to plan for one last day of screenprinting in the studio and massive catching up on all work fronts.
